Juillet, 2016 -Reading activation in regions adjacent to occipital lobe and inferior parietal lobealmost completely overlaps visual maps, whereas a signiﬁcant portion of frontal activation for reading indorsolateral and ventral prefrontal cortex overlaps both visual and auditory maps. Even classical language regions in superior temporal cortex are partially overlapped by topological visual and auditorymaps. By contrast, the main overlap with somatomotor maps is restricted to a small region on the anterior bank of the central sulcus near the border between the face and hand representations of M-I.
Juillet, 2016 - Toddlers (28- to 30-month-olds; n = 26) successfully learned novel words with a 5-dB SNR when they initially heard the labels embedded in ﬂuent speech withoutbackground noise, before they were mapped to objects. The results point to both challenges and protectivefactors that may impact language learning in complex auditory environments.
